Copy a rectangular window of selected objects out from your drawing, and trim everything outside the window's edges.
Very useful tool to quickly extract details from a master plan drawing.
Run TrimWindow command from the ribbon or command line, and you will be asked to pick 2 corners of a rectangle selection. Let's call it the TrimWindow.
Then, all supported drawings objects within the TrimWindow will be trimmed and copied to another location.
+ To trim 3D polylines, copied objects are flatten to the XOY plane. Original objects are unchanged.
+ Supported object types are: 2D line, curve, 3D poly, dimension, leader. Text and hatch are copied only, not trimmed.
